No, they aren't AFAIK. We do have Leap images though (opensuse:leap), 
and since Leap is the publically available version of SLES, is that

Is there a reason we can't just give them an openSUSE docker image (from 
the registry) and then adapt the build script they give us? Also, since 
we have Leap, surely that's sufficiently similar to SLES to be 
indistinguishable from a "making a preliminary build script" perspective?

Or are you suggesting that a SLES package will be maintained by an 
external party?
